A warm welcome to visitors to the Paint Sea On Site Art Festival!
Observe over 70 artists, attired in yellow t-shirts or ball caps, as they paint en plein air in and around our beautiful town for two days, July 21 & 22, 2018.
"Fresh paintings" are collected from the artists on location and brought to the Lunenburg Community Centre where they are placed on standing boards for you to view. (See below for directions to the Centre.)
Admission is free. Interested bidders may sign up at the entrance desk for a bidding number, valid for both days.
There are two ways to purchase art:
1. You may use your bidding number to buy immediately at the ‘take way price,’ until 3.30 pm each day.
2. You may bid on a picture and keep returning to the Centre during the day to make sure that you are still the highest bidder.
Bidding closes at 4.30 pm each day.
An Auctioneer will then announce the winning bids. After paying for your treasures you may collect your paintings.
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase original art at excellent prices and to meet the artists in person. A map at the entrance to the Centre will indicate where each artist is painting.
There will also be a silent auction, courtesy of our business supporters in Lunenburg. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
See children’s art, too. On the Saturday, children under 16 have an art class, then go outdoors to paint for two hours. Their work will be on display, but is not for sale. Please take time to view this art and to encourage our young artists. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Click HERE for a printable map to the Lunenburg Community Centre, or Click HERE for Google Maps _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ PAINT SEA ON SITE ART FESTIVAL c/o LUNENBURG ART GALLERY, 194B Lincoln Street, PO BOX 1418, LUNENBURG NS B0J 2C0
